The restaurant resurgence in Hollywood is still picking up steam, as news comes today that a massive 200+ seat restaurant is making its way to the Sunset/Gower intersection. Called Paley. (period and all), the seasonal California restaurant will be a partnership with NeueHouse, a private co-working space headed for the same area by way of New York City.
Already that area is teeming with life both big and little, from the recent Sugarfish opening to the oddball ILXB Dimsum Eats further east. But with loads of new development happening in the area, in addition to the already opened Emerson campus, it seems there’s still plenty of room for everyone.
So what’s there to expect at the oddly-punctuated Paley.? Loads of seating, for one. Right now the number clocks in at 245 seats, with options for light-filled dining room and patio seating within the larger NeueHouse courtyard. The chef will be Greg Bernhardt, who opened Church & State in the Arts District back in 2008 before shuffling off to other projects later on, including working on several LudoBites pop-ups.
The restaurant team behind the incoming restaurant is one Plan Do See, which has some two dozen properties globally, but no West Coast outlets of yet. The group is Tokyo-based and has earned Michelin stars in Kobe and New York City, though they offer restaurants everywhere from Miami to Jakarta.
Of course, there's still much more to come from Hollywood overall, with news that Curtis Stone is expected to drop an eatery (in conjunction with Chad Colby) into the western stretch of Sunset Boulevard sometime next year. And then there is, of course, Cat & Fiddle, which has been waiting to reopen for what seems like ages now. As for Paley., look for an early 2016 debut.
